Public Admin paper 1- sample answers

I have uploaded two of my answers for pub ad paper 1. I have deliberately chosen theoretical questions as I feel in 2009, paper 1 was devoid of questions (except SHG and few others) where much creativity could be exhibited. Hope it helps.

    Hi, Anay,

    Your answers made me spell bound. So how did you memorize that stuff? I mean to pen down things in such a coherent way even with exam stress is quiet a remarkable thing to do. Can you give some insights on that? How do you frame a mental framework of the subject?

    Hi Genius,
    I have asked this question to many people, but none gave me a proper reply.
    Hope you wont ignore it.
    I am pursuing my MA from Madras university in public administration. I am wondering weather the books of MA would be sufficient to finish the syllabus or not.
    If not, please name the books what one should go through to finish the syllabus of public administration for UPSC.
    Please, please, please reply me.
    Thank you in advance
    Waiting for your reply

    • anaydwivedi says:

      hi nisha
      i m sorry, i dnt knw abt the books or the syllabus for MA pub ad…wht u can do is to go thru the syllabus prescribed by upsc and compare it with ur ma syllabus…
      certainly, not much prep is required as far as pub ad is concerned if ur general knowledge and current awareness is good…
      as for the books for pub ad upsc cse, kindly go thru the post on pub ad mains…there arent many books i have listed…u can easily go thru them and get an idea…
      i hope the reply was as per ur expectations…

  8. Pritam Maske says:

    Hi Anay,

    Is classes really needed for public admn?or shd i join only test series in sriram?
    I stay in mumbai…..In dadar AA shah institute is there…do u have any idea abt how is it?
    Waiting for ur response.
    Thank you

    • anaydwivedi says:

      hi pritam
      m sorry, i dont abt any institute in mumbai for cse prep…
      classes arent tht imp if u r confident tht u have a good understanding of wht is reqd to be studied and wht is not…
      yes, join the test series at sriram’s coz when it comes to pub ad…answer-writing is where the real prep begins…and orientation and approach is extremely important…

  9. Himanshu sharma says:

    Sir you said that you have used Fadi and Fadi for paper one but there is nothing in relation to NPA 3 and third Minnowbrook conference given in that chapter of NPA?

  10. Himanshu sharma says:

    Hi Sir,

    There is a question of previous year “There is a disaster of management in India than management of disaster”

    could you please give basic idea of how to tackle it in 2 ways 1)if agreed 2)disagreed

    *I would like to disagree and mould the discussion from previous times to modern times and then DM act 2005..basic abt NDMA,NIDM,battallion forces

    *Futher will conclude that although there is a genuine need of adding cloud burst,landslide and other man made disasters like oil spilletc. in the list and he fact that communication is broken during disaster leads in difficulty in managment

    *But due to the aforesaid reason(DM,NDMA) the managment of disaster has improved considerably

    now sir i find my answer very one dimensional i.e only relating to NDMA etc(may be due to fact that I have just started reading newspapers so not including current events)

    Could you please advise and answer this question in both manners..?


    • anaydwivedi says:

      hi himanshu
      in my opinion, u r on the right track..i wud have approached the Q exactly in the same way as u have…
      yes, there is lack of coordination and unity of command as has been often witnessed…lack of resources and to a very large extent faulty planning…but in recent years govt has taken steps at all the 3 levels- national, state as well as district (local) for mgmt of disasters…then write abt ndma and other bodies/institutions mentioned on the ndma site…u can also include the recent recomm of ARC II in its 3rd report…
      conclude by saying tht even though legislations can b enacted and bodies formed…wht matters most is how the implementation is done…so provide some suggestions such as awareness on the part of the people, sensitivity of officials and organizations involved, educating the children, adhering to the laws such as building codes…etc to present a practical way for the future…

    • anaydwivedi says:

      and yup, adding recent events like the oil spill is really good…u shud do it as much as possible for all the papers…

      • Himanshu sharma says:

        and I would have drawn that diagram also which in on NDMA site

        Thanks sir,now i am getting some sort of idea and all credit goes to you 🙂

  11. Abhinav says:

    Hi Anay

    Thanks for the valuable help.
    You had mentioned somewhere that you included India specific examples/facts in paper 1 also.Is it possible in questions like these?
    Also the content in the sample answers is theoretical in nature like names of people etc.So the content has to memorized and the presentation differs for different questions?

    • anaydwivedi says:

      hi abhinav
      yup, i have replied to earlier queries on paper 1 answers and india centric examples…kindly go thru them…i didn’t differentiate b/w paper 1 and 2….only focussed on the Q i was answering…
      content has to b memorized no doubt…but it’s not just abt writing the content…u have to analyze it in ur own words as well…say a Q on taylor is asked…u might know his 4 principles, etc…but then apart frm writing the std thing…it’s always better to explain wht made him postulate the principles, wht was it’s impact, etc…so there lies the difference b/w the answers…
